Miller to take role at cricket club

Geoff Miller is to be voted in this week as Derbyshire CCC’s president.

The Supervisory Board unanimously supported the nomination of the former Derbyshire captain and England & Wales Cricket Board national selector for the position.

Miller, born in Chesterfield, played 254 first-class matches for Derbyshire between 1973 and 1990 and was an integral member of the 1981 NatWest Trophy winning side.

The all-rounder took 888 wickets and scored 12,027 runs, including two centuries, in 283 career first-class matches.

Miller’s form in county cricket earned him an international call-up where he claimed 60 wickets and scored 1,213 runs in 34 Tests for England.

He went on to enjoy great success as ECB National Selector, overseeing England’s rise to number one in both the Test and 50-over formats.
